Katja Rüegg always puts patients first in her projects. With this focus in mind, she accompanies hospitals on their paths to becoming Lean Hospitals. Katja oversees hospital construction projects using the Design Thinking method. She simulates long-term solutions e.g. for emergencies or in-patient care, involving both patients and staff.
Katja completed her Master’s degree in International Relations & Governance at the University of St. Gallen. During this time, she dealt with the political aspects of healthcare and the management of public institutions.
Her love of working with people from different cultures and backgrounds could well be traced back to her exchange semester in Medellín, Columbia.
